Kulturhaus Kosmos

The Kulturhaus Kosmos, situated on the corner of Langstrasse/Europaallee, unites stage, movie theater, book salon, bistro, and bar under one roof.

  • Six movie theaters and auditoriums
    Book salon with store and café
    Multifunctional event forum with stage
  • Spacious bistro

The Kulturhaus Kosmos, which lies in the buzzing Langstrasse quarter, is a lively, cosmopolitan meeting place for culture buffs and those thirsty for knowledge.

With its multifunctional event forum, six movie theaters, and book salon complete with store and café, the Kosmos cultural center is a place for contemplation, discussion, and enjoyment. In addition, a bar with a lounge, as well as a spacious restaurant decorated in Parisian bistro-style, looks after visitors’ culinary needs.

In the summer months, a timber outstation called the Lala-Bar, set up on the square between the Kulturhaus Kosmos and the 25hours Hotel, invites guests to philosophize, eat an ice cream, observe their surroundings, and enjoy the sun.

Situated between the newly created Europaallee and the multicultural Langstrasse, the Kosmos is a place of encounter and mutual understanding.
